A Question on Text Complexity

A Question on Text Complexity | guided reading | Scoop.it

Tim Shanahan on Literacy

 

If the issue is teaching reading, then matching text complexity with student reading levels is NOT the issue. That’s where guided reading and similar schemes go wrong.Placing students in more challenging books is a good idea because it increases opportunity to learn (there is more to figure out in challenging texts). This is important since our kids do not read effectively at high enough levels.Increases in text difficulty levels need to be coordinated with increases in the amounts and quality of scaffolding, support, encouragement, and explanation provided by the teacher.

Key Point on Increasing Rigor:


Instead of asking what book level to teach someone at, teachers should ask, “If I place a student in a book this challenging, how much support will I need to provide to enable him/her to learn from this text?"

Text Complexity: "The place to begin with is the student’s reading level.”

Text Complexity: "The place to begin with is the student’s reading level.” | guided reading | Scoop.it

In the past I myself embraced what Fountas and Pinnel called “a balanced literacy approach.”  Under this model classroom reading would be made up of the following components:

independent reading (at the student’s independent reading level)guided reading of a whole-group text (at median instructional reading level for class)teacher read aloud (slightly above median instructional level). 

 

The common core call for increased text complexity seems to fit well with the “guided reading” portion of the block.

A nice article that applies to any discipline, not just English!
